Issue/Introduction



I have installed CA Chorus Software Manager and I am trying to acquire, download and install a product using CA Chorus Software Manager. What are the steps to do this?

Environment

Release:
Component: MSM

Resolution

This example uses CA-CA Cleanup for ACF2 - MVS 12.0 SP00. The procedure is the same for all products. Login into CA CSM and go to the products tab. If there are no products listed under available products then you will need to click update Complete Product List. This acquires all the products for your sites that you would see in support.ca.com. After the Update Complete Product List task completes you should have the available products listed. You can locate the product to install by navigating under available products or searching on the product name.
